    Yes and no. It will be crowded, but really only the night of the fight and at that one hotel that's hosting. You shouldn't avoid it or anything.

    Agree.

    MGM will be nuts. Other than that, it will be pretty normal. Airport will have more private jets parked though...

    Glad I'm coming in the next day :) Fight nights aren't as crazy as they used to be (Tyson-Holyfield comes to mind).

    I was there the night of the Tyson - Holyfield fight when the fan man landed in the ring. The town was crazy that night I remember the cab driver saying there must be a full moon. I have also been there on other big fight nights and remember LV boulevard being extra busy around the time of the fight.

    I envy you. I hope I can also go to Vegas and watch Pacquiao's fight with Bradley. I think it'll be much crowded..

    Fan Man was Holyfield Bowe... and nothing will compare to Hatton vs Mayweather. It was bananas. The fight May 3rd shouldn't be that bad. Pacquiao is this weekend so it will dilute it a bit as well.
